Today started of very bad, around 2:00 AM I woke up with a serve dry-heaving attack. For those not familiar with that term:
Nausea is an unpleasant, queasy feeling in the throat or stomach that may result in vomiting. … Vomiting can only come from the stomach. Retching is the reverse movement (peristalsis) of the stomach and esophagus without vomiting. Sometimes this is called the dry heaves.
We got it under control quickly with Zofran via IV, however, 2 hours later I had a second attack, this time Ativan was used to control it. I was able to catch some rest and woke up around 7:00 AM.
